This Saturday a four and a half metre tall squatting man will appear beside London’s Tower Bridge. The artists’ collective greyworld has created this huge interactive sculpture called The Public Toilet for World Toilet Day.
With a screen on the face of the statue, the public can show their support for World Toilet Day by uploading a short five second video (or photo) of their face via www.thepublictoilet.com. The videos are then streamed onto the statue’s face and shown on the website.
Unilever’s hygiene brand Domestos and the World Toilet Organization (WTO) commissioned The Public Toilet, to symbolise the plight of 2.5 billion people who don’t have access to improved sanitation, of whom 1.1 billion are forced to practise open defecation.
